Teaching and Learning Discussion Groups
These groups provide a regular forum for discussion of classroom experiences and pedagogical ideas among faculty from multiple departments with related teaching interests. The groups usually meet once or twice a month. Organizers may apply for funding to pay for modest meal expenses or for books, not both. Requests should be sent to the Associate Deans' office for consideration by the Instructional Support Committee and should describe the group's purposes, proposed meeting schedule, approximate number of participants, and anticipated budget for the year.

- First Monday in February for spring semester groups
- Meals/Refreshments: up to $6 per participant per session or support for box lunches through Dining Services at the prevailing rate
